Research on precipitation and flooding
An ongoing research project is developing flow forecasts which are better at capturing the effects of sudden downpours. It allows for better preparedness upon local, extreme water flows in the future.
A research project is to investigate climate change in the Arctic over the next 30 years. The study will show how the reduced amounts of sea ice and snow in the Arctic are interacting with climate change.
Apps and web services for forecasting and decision support in the event of flooding, water contamination, irrigation and dam control. This is the aim of a European research project coordinated by SMHI.
